"From Egypt to Georgia, President Bush -- egged on by neoconservative pundits and analysts -- wrote rhetorical checks he had no intention (or ability) to cash." -- Gregory Scoblete, writing in RealClearWorld.
The neocons have been disastrously wrong about al Qaeda, Iraq, and Iran, to name just a few topics. They haven't owned up to their misjudgements, and are trying to needle President Obama into direct intervention in Iran. That, as most Iranian experts agree, would be another catastrophe not only for U.S. Middle East policy, but for the democratic forces inside Iran.
